The media was also interested in the conversation between Xavi and Son Heung-min. What did they talk about?
“Barcelona have been linked with a move for Son Heung-min. He is an outstanding player and would be a great signing for most clubs in the world. There have been reports of Barcelona trying to sign him. This happened when Xavi was in charge. It didn’t happen, but maybe Xavi and Son were hugging and talking about it.
